    I am saddened beyond words, and so I borrow those of Harriet Beecher Stowe.

    The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid
    and deeds left undone.
    Rest in Peace, Bruce.

    I met and was fortunate enough to hang out with Bruce at the past 3 Comfortechs. He was a very sweet person. This is a terrible loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

    I've come to know Bruce fairly well through HVAC-Talk, HVAC Comfortech, and the many phone calls and emails we shared with each other over the years. He was a big man with an even bigger heart and my respect and admiration for him grew each year. He was fast with advice, a determined listener, and a quick wit; a talented businessman, entrepreneur, and coach; and he'd give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.

    Bruce, your loss was SO unexpected and it pains me greatly to have to say goodbye. HVAC-talk will not be the same without you. My condolences to your immediate family, to Wendy, and to your extended family here on the site. Rest in peace my friend. You are already missed.

    We are planning to run a story about Bruce and his life in the HVAC industry in the May issue of the magazine, as well as here on Htalk and on the Contracting Business website. If you had a relationship with Bruce Norman, online, in person, business or personal, we'd love to hear from you. If you have a good picture of him that we can publish in the magazine, please send a digital version of it me.

    I'm breaking the rules here, but it's worth it for this great man -- please send your anecdotes and photos to me at mike.weil@penton.com, post them here on H-talk, or Tweet them to me @msweil. You can also share with me on Facebook if you so desire.

    RIP Bruce. Communicated with him several times via e-mail. He made me a deal on lots of excess parts and shipped them promptly. I could tell he was a very busy man and a nice guy.
    It is time for all good men to come to the aid of their country, for we are in deep crap.
